Families

The Mobile Pantry utilizes refrigerated vehicles to provide food that traditional pantries are often not able to distribute to people in need such as fresh produce and frozen meat.

Benefits include:

  • * Expanded capacity to serve more households
  • Removal of barriers that prevent access to food in unserved/underserved areas
  • Flexibility in delivery of food in an effective, expeditious manner with agency involvement while maintaining an atmosphere of dignity.

Mid-South Food Bank seeks to increase distribution of wholesome, fresh produce and protein-rich frozen meat by introducing the Mobile Pantry in areas where our partner agencies may lack the capacity to serve the need in its area.

The Mobile Pantry serves families, children and seniors for three reasons: (1) to provide more people in need with wholesome food, including fresh produce; (2) to introduce children to fresh fruits and vegetables that are often missing from their household tables and (3) to bring fresh produce and healthy protein to seniors who may not be able to afford those items given their fixed incomes or who lack access to a full-service market.

The Mobile Pantry provides direct delivery of fresh produce, frozen meat and other perishable foods on a regular basis to designated, underserved communities.
